I have been friends with Betty for many years. We enjoyed spending time together, meeting other friends for lunch as we celebrated birthdays, chatting on the phone and sharing recipes. She taught me to make floral bows and sourdough bread, she even gave me a “starter!” Betty was a caring person who loved to make others happy by sharing her crafts and time visiting with them. She adored Debbie, Lisa, her grandchildren, great grandchildren and fur babies and bragged about their accomplishments. Most of all she loved Don who was not only her dedicated husband but her loving caregiver! Betty will be sorely missed but we can look forward to seeing her again in the glorious presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We extend our sympathies to all of the family as you celebrate the life of Betty. David and Sandra Lorick

🕯️ I would love to say that it was a pleasure working with Mrs. Roberts and her family. The joy and laughter from this family is unmatched. I enjoyed all of our funny moments, the happy moments, and especially the moments I provided care and comfort. It’s time for your rest Mrs Roberts, your time on earth has ended but heaven has more for you there. I wish you all much love and comfort during this moment. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more , neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelations 21:4
